Recent technological advancements have revolutionized the development and manufacturing of electronic sensors. The micro-bio-electronics group (MLAB) harnesses that technology to reduce the size and increase the capabilities of critical sensor systems.
We develop sensors for a wide variety of sensing applications that make faster measurements, measure more samples simultaneously, are smaller, and are less costly than traditional sensing systems. Because of this, the sensors are suitable for a multitude of diverse applications in ﬁelds ranging from medicine to the military. For example, surgeons can potentially implant these devices in patients to monitor health, soldiers can use them to track combat conditions, and researchers can rely on them to accurately image and understand molecular structures.
The core technologies that drive the research in MLAB are CMOS based devices and nanotechnology-based manufacturing.
